The Paluguillo Water Conservation Area Management Plan is a suitable instrument to ensure the conservation and restoration of the Paluguillo Water Conservation Area, exercising a responsible and articulated management that allows the protection, care and rehabilitation of its high Andean ecosystems. The intention is to minimize the impact of existing infrastructural works, inform and educate the population, and begin hydroclimatic monitoring. It is structured in ten strategic projects and organizes the area in zones to guarantee a use compatible with conservation and minimize possible negative impacts. The Plan, which is mainly developed on a parish scale, is managed and drafted by FONAG, an endowment fund created to care for, protect and conserve the watersheds that supply water to the Metropolitan District of Quito.
